and invites them to watch a movie with spielberg. i'm referring to "lincoln." basically the republican party keeps talking on two sides of their face and not being hon west the american people they just don't like this president. but that's one of the reasons why the president recognizes his vacuum when it comes to that leadership. that's why he keeps sending vice president biden down to the congress to the negotiate on his behalf because they just don't like him. >> let's look at the record, maria teresa. speaker boehner has declined invitations to state dinners for each of the following countries, south korea, germany, china, mexico, india, and, of course, great britain. as for republican senate leader mitch mcconnell he turned down invasions for the state dinners of india and china. he even declined to come to the white house then the president was celebrating his home state's college basketball championships. but it's the president's fault that republicans aren't comfortable with him. explain that to me. >> something that may not be well-known is when boehner actually did go to one of th
laying his left hand on two bibles -- one owned by abraham lincoln and the other owned by dr. martin luther king, jr. afterward, obama will deliver a speech laying out his plans for the next four years. the nro ceremony will include music from singers james taylor, beyoncÉ, and others which will carry live during our extended five-our inauguration special. after our regular broadcast ends, we will continue to bring you coverage until 1:00 p.m. eastern standard time, including the swearing in ceremony. some stations will run the whole five our special, for others you can go to democracynow.org. this year, the inauguration also comes on the federal holiday in honor of dr. martin luther king, jr., who delivered his "i have a dream" speech 50 years ago, not far from here at the lincoln memorial. later in our special coverage, we will air excerpts of some of dr. king's less often played speeches, including "beyond vietnam." why he opposed the war in vietnam. but first, we turn to some of the voices of hope and resistance from sunday night's piece ball. not affiliated with any political p
, one used by king and one by abraham lincoln. >> their actions and the movement they represented are the only reason that it is possible for me to be inaugurated. >> martin luther king day is dome and the president see as connection to him being on the podium and the sack credit files of dr. king and many others. he will talk about that tonight in a reception here in washington at 8:45 p.m. eastern. >> thank you, ed henry for all of those who did not know my reference at the top of the show was to the football game that was ongoing at the time. congratulations to the 49ers who are headed to the super bowl. for those who were watching the game who may just be joining us, welcome aboard to the special "special report." one lasting element of a president is the effect on the supreme court. so far, president obama has put two justices on high court, both women, both considered progressives, left of center, and tonight, we look at what is ahead. >> in the event there is a vacancy the president is going do come under immense political pressure to swing. >> after initial g.o.p. resistan
of martin luther king and abraham lincoln. this is martin luther king day. we celebrate that, as well. the second time a president has been inaugurated on martin luther king day. about 800,000 people will be there on the mall. a little bit smaller than four years ago. but no less buoyant. a lot of smiling faces out there. we hear the choir of p.s. 22 in staten island. >> they are the largest choir in staten island. and i believe they are fifth graders. let's listen to them for a second. ♪ don't pay no mind to the feeling, until you feel it ♪ >> we love the caps. we love the swaying this morning. we've been thinking to ourselves, a second inauguration is typically not as -- not as surprising as the first inauguration. but nonetheless, it rededicates this country to big ideas. and the person who has to do it in his speech, walking up to the podium, is the president. we saw the first family walking in to st. john's church earlier this morning. >> they're at that worship service right now. there they are, right there, just before they walked into st. john's episcopal church, across th
. >> of course, there was lincoln's second inaugural where he talked about the wounds of the nation. we know that the president has been working on this president for weeks and major garrett, our chief white house correspondent, is at the white house this morning with a little bit of insight on what we might hear today. >> well, good morning, scott. those closest to the president tell us this speech is in the moment and it's going to talk, they hope, credibly, believably about responsibilities ahead. and the prospect for not only bipartisan compromise, and things that didn't seem achievable four years ago. it might be worth reminding us ourselves how the president ended first inaugural address four years ago. scott, the president talked about america being in the midst of a winter of our hardship and he urged the nation to brave icy currents and to endure whatever storms may come. there was a sense of forboding then, a sense of crisis, both economic and otherwise, that white house advisers that he feels is no longer as present now as it was then. so that's part of the optimistic note he'll s
: and abraham lincoln's, delivered to a nation divided by civil war. >> with malice toward none, with charity for all. >> reporter: a third theme, renewing our commitment to the values of our founding fathers. perhaps it's surprising the president found inspiration in the words of this former a adversa adversary. >> there can be no human rights without human liberty. >> reporter: aides tell us that, although the president disagrees with mr. bush's policy, he's moved by the speech's democratic principles. >> freedom by its nature must be chosen and defended by citizens. >> reporter: a message, aides say, the president will echo today, as he did at the white house last week. >> that most fundamental set of rights, to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> reporter: of all his predecessors, the president says he is most inspired by president lincoln. >> that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth. >> reporter: in november, mr. obama screened steven spielberg's movie "lincoln" at the white ho
foundation. >>> next, rush limbaugh has a theory about why so many on the left are fans of the movie "lincoln." >> why is bill clinton out there at the golden globes last night being brought on stage to thunderous standing ovations to talk about lincoln and what he did during -- what did lincoln do? as far as these people are concerned, he wiped out the south. but he didn't finish, so what the left is admitting today that they are doing is once -- trying to finish it off. lincoln did not fully finish. they're all focused on gods and guns in the south. they love both of them. and so the south has to be wiped out again. i'm telling you, essentially there is an all-out effort being made to marginalize conservatism. >> reminds me of radio rwanda in the bad old days. it's been far right republicans obviously doing all the civil war talk. they're the ones talking about the civil war, about nullification of federal laws and all the secession petitions out there. >>> before house republicans head off for their annual retreat this week, i think it's in williamsburg, the democratic congressional campai
washington, jefferson, and lincoln. both a message of humility and of inspiration to someone taking the oath of office for president. >> this is now the biden family. the biden brothers who have been a campaign concert with their father the other night when he was at the iowa ball. he said he was proud to be president of the united states meng corrected himself and said he is proud to be vice president of the united states. it is said that he does want to be president and he will throw his hat into the ring as soon as this gets underway. >> there are a couple of people who are likely to throw their hats in the ring, including mrs. clinton. they have used this family bible and all the swearing sin and his family. president obama we used to buy votes. i think history should note i saw one of the people on the stand who was jay-z. the first time that he has been on the inaugural stanford presidential inauguration.

this movie on lincoln, the recent movie on lincoln and the lesson of that movie, i think was, when hard things get done, they get done because a president decided he was going to do what was necessary to get them done and that means you have to realistically look at the world you live in and the washington you have been given by the american voters to work with. >> chris: let's talk about some of the specific items that will be on your agenda. what do you think of the new house republican plan to pass a short-term extension of the debt limit until april and in the meantime, insist that the senate pass a budget or all of you lose your pay. >> i think all of us losing our pay if we don't pass the budget is the right thing to do. i'm for sutzing spending, passing the budget is not quite enough, but at least it is a step in the right direction. if you went to your credit counselor and said, i can't pay my bills, he wouldn't say, we'll extend your limit, he'd say, what will you do to pay your bills in the future and a budget is a big step toward doing that. one of the frustrations i think of
goodwin later on. what is the chance he doesn't quote lincoln's second inaugural? >> i would be shocked if lincoln is not quoted. i would be shocked if specific issues aren't mentioned. that doesn't mean he isn't going to talk about newtown. but as far as talking about guns and gun control, he's got a state of the union in three weeks. advisers continue to remind us of that. hey, this is not a laundry list of things he wants to get done. yes, he has a small window. i think savannah is right, i think we'll be able to judge by the fourth of july of this year, has he gotten one of his gun proposals passed through congress, is immigration done? all of those things, if he can get them done, probably need to get done by the summer. but today's speech knot for that. that's that state of the union which takes place in three weeks. >> all right. chuck todd in front of reviewing stand. we want to show you, especially those just joining us the kind of calendar of events, the schedule upcoming. right now, the president is hosting congressional leaders inside the white house for a kind of traditiona
-american manager of a moody bible. and he will use that, and tomorrow, the bible that abraham lincoln used on his inauguration and one used by martin luther king. there you have it, a shot of the blue room, aptly named. >> this is a look inside the white house with chief justice john roberts. let's listen in to the white house for swearing-in of president barack obama. >> please, raise yush right hand and repeat after me, i barack, husays obama do solemnly swear hay will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend... the constitution of the united states. so help you god. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> thank you mr. chief justice. thank you so much. [applause] >> thank you. >> i did it. all right. thank you, everybody. >> and with that, president obam has started his second term. it's amazing to watch. you saw the president enter the second term, the 44th president of the united states with a swearing-in by the chief justice and megyn kelley. >> i owe wallace a quarter. >> he did use the
crisis. we talked about abraham lincoln's second inaugural while the civil war was still going on. we talk about f.d.r.'s "we have nothing to fear." the great depression was on and unemployment with such staggeringly high numbers so this is a time where people have felt improvement since president obama came? we have to remember the crash of the economy stock market in such terrible shape. it's been a progressive incrementalism. but i have to say this speech is part of a progressive tradition of a theodore roosevelt speech in kansas where barack obama in 1911 when -- in 2011 he went and if you read the t.r. speech "the new nationalism" you'll find hit in the speech he gave today. you'll find it at f.d.r.'s second inaugural and in many of martin luther king's speeches. people talk about kennedy's inaugural about swords and switchbacks. it's a technique that worked brilliantly for john f. kennedy but i think the president had caught the aura of dr. king today quite well. >> pelley: and this day being inauguration day and martin luther king day all at the same time. doug, thanks very muc
their sauerkraut. >> they were invited to a screening of "lincoln," apparently at the very last minute -- >> nobody's perfect. >> i would think when the president invites you to see a movie at the white house, you might want to go. maybe if you were disagreeable in nature, not fun and quite frankly not interested in getting anywhere on spending, maybe you would decline. look at the president. why don't i play that sound bite again, no matter what you think of his ideologically, joe, wouldn't you want to have a beer with that guy or a beer with mitch mcconnell. >> you keep interrupting. >> we should get a jar. >> should get a jar. he's a likable guy. we spent time with him. i like him an awful lot. he's ae's a likable guy. he hasn't reached out to republicans and he hasn't reached out a lot. when he reached out, they haven't come. he said his daughters don't want to spend that much time with him. he will have a lot of time to play cards. >> get merlot. >> cigarettes. will the president let them smoke? >> coming up. arianna huffington and nbc director chuck todd and "washington post," eugene robinso
ceremony on martin luther king employing bibles by martin luther king and president lincoln. an address down the mall toward lincoln's memorial where dr. king gave his most famous speech. to spell out the country his vision for the next four years. it is america's quadrennial celebration of the office of the presidency, the orderly transition of power, the luminaries, the singers, the salutes, the speech, the pomp, the circumstance, the second inauguration of president barack obama starts right now. >>> welcome to washington. it is chilly but frankly bearable outside as the country prepares to celebrate the peaceful maintenance of power, the transferns of power from the first term administration of president barack obama to his second term administration. the president was officially sworn in by chief justice john roberts yesterday at the blue room at the white house as the first lady and the obama daughters looked on. but in the little less than two hours the president will affirm that oath before a much larger crowd with 100% more pomp and an equal proportion of circumstance. we have
'm nine years old, finished lincoln's last days, best ever. and will there be a book for killing kennedy. >> yes, in the spring. and with the great success of killing kennedy and killing lincoln has c-span book show invited you on? they have not. point of rocks, maryland, bill you pointed out the conservatives lacked a national lieder, why doesn't you need one. we don't promote ideology on the factor, we promote problem solving for the good of all americans. if you illegally possess a gun in this country you get life in prison, if you illegally discharge a gun you get the death penalty. and singapore, a tough place, spent time there, no doubt about it. don't mess around in singapore. and finally, tonight, the factor tip of the day. be cautious, as we said, in the talking points memo with the internet. whenever you hear somebody say they learned something from the net, be very skeptical. remember, there are no standards in cyberspace, anything goes. let me introduce you to benji, who is he? writes for a site talking points memo and stole from me and he told

embodiment of this unshakable confidence. i speak of the completion of the capitol dome. when abraham lincoln took office two years earlier, the dome above us was a half built eyesore, conventional wisdom was to be left unfinished until the war ended. the half finished dome finished a half divided nation. lincoln said, if people see the capital going on, it is a sign that we intend the union shall go on. despite the conflict which involves the nation and surrounded the city, the dome continued to rise. on december 2, 1863, the statue of freedom, a woman, was placed to top the dome where she still stands today. in a sublime irony, it was a former slave, now freed american who helped to cast the bronze statue. our present times are not as careless or despairing as they were in 1863, but in 2013, far too many dow the future of this great nation and our ability to tackle our own heirs finished dome. the differences in the country and world so deep. we will never overcome them. when thoughts like these produce anxiety, fear and even despair, we do well to remember that americans have always been a

, he'll use two other bibles. one of them belonged to president lincoln. it's the same one will be used in 2009 during the inauguration. the second bible belongs to civil rights leader dr. martin luther king jr. king's son joins me now from washington. we're so glad you're here. >> thank you. i'm honored to be here today. >> you wrote an op-ed, even your description of the bible is touching. you say it's faded and some of the pages are torn. tell us how your father, dr. king, used that bible. >> well, number one, we found that when he was pastoring or preparing a sermon, his first sermon at the dexter avenue memorial baptist church, that he actually had markings where he actually designated certain things within the bible. we know that he traveled with the bible, derived inspiration from it. it certainly is worn and at tattered. but i think that shows how much he used it. >> you say you never thought the bible would be used again. why? >> you certainly could never imagine that it would be used in the capacity that it is going to be used on monday as the president accepts his oath of off

is lincoln's second inaugural. you know, what you want to do is call attention to, you know, this is a speech that speaks to all americans. not just to your constituency. call attention to the values that can unite us and move us forward. there's not too much more you can do in that context. >> michael, thank you very much. >>> speaking of the values that unite us, this week as we remember the life and legacy of the reverend martin luther king jr., we've got something very special to share with you. previously unreleased interviews with dr. king in atlanta have now been discovered. the 32-year-old civil rights leader was then talking about how at the age of 5 years old he first became conscious of racism and how his mother tried to instill a sense of pride over inferiority in those difficult times. >> it seems to me that the only thing the mother can do, the negro mother, is to try from the beginning to instill in the child a sense of somebody-ness. this is what my mother tried to do. she made it very clear that in spite of these conditions, you are as good as anybody else, and you must not f
